Incompatible Allure: Bizarre material combinations give this house charisma

Incompatible Allure: Bizarre material combinations give this house charisma

10 February, 2014  |  Exterior, House Interior

This Japanese house uses a bizarre combination of incompatible materials to complete its unusual styling. A mixture of concrete, glass, metal, wood and plaster make up the exterior and interior of this house, and even know the miss matched materials don’t seem like they would work, the designers at Tato Architects have proven this theory wrong. The two-storey house has a fantastic view of the city district and is located on a gentle hillside in Osaka, Japan. The high ceilings and large windows give the rooms a spacious feel, while the wooden beams and endless gaps and unfinished walls make the house look like a never ending puzzle. This house, however strange and bizarre, is a perfect example of how a good architect can make incompatible materials and styles look like they were meant to be used together.
